    Dr. Lefkovits is a rare breed of physician. He reminds me of when I was a child, doctors took their time with patients and truly care about each and every patient. After any office visit he personally takes the time to call and follow up. He is a stickler when it come to medical ethics, do not expect this doctor to break any rules. He is by the book, you can always count on his integrity, experience, credentials and talent. I consider Dr. Lefkovits one of the best dermatologists around.
